Margaret Cho

Ms. Chen: Prom Pact

Margaret Cho stars as Ms. Chen, a sarcastic counselor with a great sense of humor and quick wit, in “Prom Pact,” from Disney Branded Television, a heartfelt romantic comedy set during the emotion and excitement of high school Prom season.

Comedian. Actor. Musician. Advocate. Entrepreneur. Five-time GRAMMY® and Emmy® nominee. When hasn’t Cho’s strong voice been part of our consciousness? It feels like she has always been here, like a friend you can always count on, lighting the path for other women, other members of underrepresented groups, and other performers to follow.

Cho staunchly supports the causes that are important to her: anti-racism, anti-bullying, and gay rights, all while fulfilling her successful creative side with a legendary stand-up career that has yielded 10-plus comedy tours. Her recent television appearances ― guest star on season two of “The Flight Attendant” (HBO Max), guest star on season two of “Hacks” (HBO Max), and two “Netflix is a Joke” comedy specials (“Stand Out: An LGBTQ+ Celebration” and “Jane Fonda & Lily Tomlin: Ladies Night Live”) — have expanded an already wide-ranging career. Her role as the Mother Hen in the well-reviewed movie “Fire Island” solidifies why we all love Cho in the first place.

Cho, whom Vogue magazine named one of the nine best female comedians of all time alongside Joan Rivers, Gilda Radner and Wanda Sykes, appreciates where she finds herself right now. “I think comedians, in general, we get better as we get older, and we kind of get more observant and more astute in those observations.”

Thankfully, Margaret has more stories to tell, and her production company, Animal Family Productions, has multiple scripted shows in development for 2022 and beyond.
